100% No. Sullivan and gold haunt me worse than the twins in the shining. 'Come and play with us west ham fans... Forever and ever and ever...'

Whoever voted yes has to be on a wind up, surely!?

Each to their own, Al - many believe G&S have done a good job.

Not just your post, of course, but I'm a little uncomfortable with some of the venom directed at those whose views don't tally with the majority on KUMB. Everyone's entitled to share their opinion.

Even if you thought they'd done a half-decent job you surely couldn't have any real belief they would take us forward?

Fair do's. Those that voted yes it would be good if the shared their opinion on as to why they voted yes and why they have confidence in GSB going forward? If they feel they will get venomous comments aimed at them, perhaps they could Pm someone who would be willing to post those comments (anonymous of course) on their behalf. I am genuinely interested to hear why.

A dear friend if mine believes the board have been 'unlucky', whilst another argues that our net spend is higher than Tottenham's so they're clearly investing.

It's upsetting that they can't see the board for who they really are. They're our Donald Trump, and some people still see them as a positive.

There is one fact which is beyond doubt where the club has improved under their stewardship - cash flow. We have lower levels of debt and higher levels of income. That's provable fact.

How much of that was down to anything they did (other than funding BFS in the championship) and how much it was down to the ludicrous PL TV deals? I'm rather more inclined to say it's the latter than the former given that all our other revenue, including ticket sales income, is virtually no different than before they rolled up and jammed there sticky fingers in the pie.

Voted no and would most likely vote no whoever the board were. Success on the pitch would need min 300m sticking in, that might get us a trophy. Off the pitch now needs what 700m-1bn mark to rebuild. If the club took that on it would kill us so it needs to be the owner - can they even do that with ffp?

Wealthy owners mean the square root of nothing if they don't run the club properly. I loosely follow Malaga and their Billionaire has got very bored of his toy; and now they wallow in the Segunda. They'd been in the Champions League at one point.

Pretty sure ffp doesn't include infrastructure projects etc.

Equally running it properly won't bring success unless you've got a few hundred million to spend

Of course its a no. Confidence in anything can only be fostered through evidence and examples of previous good practice.. The merest hint would show they were just misguided rather than consciously ripping apart the heart and soul of a once great club. They really should hang their heads in shame, apologise and move on. Dont hold your breath.
...Vermin, with not an ounce of empathy or understanding of how to run a business or look after their customers. Whilst they continue to get the support of the majority of the media and the majority of fans are willing to continue parting with their hard earned cash nothing will change and they will continue getting away with their "Great Rotten Bowl Swindle"

I know that this is only a proportionately small number of our supporters, but the results are truly hilarious. :lol:

GSB out.
